Either the "key lock " is broken, or you have the wrong key, or the steering wheel is in a bind.
Usually, the problem is # 3.
To fix it, either you or someone else needs to pull the steering wheel to the right or left until the key will turn.
One person pulls the wheel right of left whilst the other tries to turn the ignition key.
Do not force the key, but it is OK to tug the steering wheel.
This might take a little muscle.
If your front wheel is up against a curb, or something, this can happen.
God bless your efforts.
could be a differential problem, or half shaft broken where power is only going ot one wheel. when the car accelerates the wheel with power can cause the vehicle to jerk. could also be a wheel problem. ensure the tyres are inflated correctly. is the steering wheel straight or turned to one side when driving in a straight line. if turned there may be damage to the steering system. did the symptom start after another person has driven the vehicle? or after an accident or driving into a curb or off road? all these may be factors to the problem. if not the case try rotating the wheels front left to rear right and front right to rear left to see if the problem disapears. if persists seek professional to test drive the vehicle and give an appraisal to the cause.
Could be the box. Something is awful loose, or binding to keep it from returning easily. Raise and support the front end, and watch the steering parts' movements as someone turns the wheels from left to right. Maybe you can spot the problem. Are any of the rods or linkages bent, like from an impact? If it has a damper rod (looks kind of like a shock absorber), does it move smoothly? If you can't see a problem in the linkage, then it very well could be the steering box. Good luck.
your key may just be stuck because the wheel is hard over. turn the wheel hard over left or right and try to turn the key. you may have to give the wheel a good tug to overcome the pressure on the wheel lock
Your ignition sounds locked to me. Try turning the steering wheel hard to the left or right or tugging while you try turning the key. I bet it will unlock. The car isnt broken, its actually a safety feature.,
may i offer you sound advice? i would not continue driving this vehicle untill you have had the steering and front suspension checked ot also for any chassis damage which may have been attributed by the cause of this supposed minor? shunt because if your car has some serious fault dangerouse not just to yourself but other road users or passengers? could you live with the possible consequences ?? hope this helps? and wish a merry xmas frm the uk
